Two women, family members of the deceased. View the notice boards displaying photographs of the stampede victims outside Calmette Hospital the following day. The stampede began at 21:30 local time (14:30 UTC) on a bridge across the Tonlé Sap river, though witnesses said that people had been "stuck on the bridge" for several hours before, and victims were not freed until hours after the actual stampede occurred. 353 people died, and upwards of 755 more people were injured, some seriously, and many local hospitals were pushed far beyond capacity by the influx of victims.

A 40 year old leper, called Wede Astaleke is being checked by a doctor at the Alert hospital after her operation on her legs in the lepers slum of Northern Addis Ababa July 10, 2007 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Due to her remote birth place, she arrived at the hospital inside the slum too late to escape the amputation, she therefore lost her right leg.
